Stretch Mark Prevention

I know stretch marks are probably not going to become a real issue for another few months. But I'm just wondering if any of you know of anything that is known to prevent stretch marks. I have heard that Body Butter from the Bodyshop works. I have also heard that Palmer's lotion works. Any other ideas?

Before the creams, drink LOTS of water, avoid stress, eat a good diet and exercise. Circulation and hydration are your friends, and work better than creams. Good luck.

Oh and I forgot- for your b___bs wear a really good supportive sport bra day and night, and gain weight at a steady slow pace, and keep the weight gain within range, the less you gain (keeping babys health in mind) the less likely you are to stretch your skin to the point of ripping underneath.

Here's another advantage to having been a few pounds overweight for most of my life! My belly's popping out, and no stretch marks yet! No itching, nothing! It's great!

vitamin-e works good. i'm pregnant, but when my mom had me and my sister that's what she rubbed on her, and to this day she has NO stretch marks!!!!

I've been told it's mostly genetics, HOWEVER all of friends swear by Mustella Stretch Marks. It's French (they have a website, but they sell it in the US) and fairly pricey.... but they swear!!
